John Boehner to resign as House Speaker


From New York Times:

Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, throwing Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown.

Mr. Boehner made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning.

This is long overdue.

I’d like to think Boehner’s resignation will make a difference, but so long as Mitch McConnell — whom I loath even more than Boehner — remains as Senate Majority Leader, the GOP will continue to be eunuchs, and even more Republicans than the 62% in a recent Fox News poll will feel betrayed by their party.

Let us see who Boehner’s replacement will be; he will be either additional proof of who runs this country or an indication that a sufficient number of those in office want to Make America Great Again.

To Boehner , a.m.f. and take your crying towel with you , p.o.s. ……..As far as his replacement goes , don’t get your hopes up . He will be just another c.f.r. tool , parroting the ” party line ” . In a long line of c.f.r. tools parroting the party line . The new Speaker has probably been ” selected ” already .
I’m willing to bet it will not be anybody from West of the Mississippi and South of the Mason-Dixon line .

This means there will be no investigation of Bonehead and his crimes. What the HELL is wrong with this man—what meds is he on?
I certainly hope that Nancy Pelosi will not make a reprise.
Now on to the rest of the Whited Sepulchurs!

Good riddance to bad rubbish – and I hope the door does hit him in the ass on the way out. Hard.
LOL – I wonder what he is going to do with all those elephant suits?

Good riddance. I only hope that he is not replaced by another RINO like Kevin McCarthy. Gosar or Jordan would suit me.

I agree, long overdue, but more is needed. McConnell is next, they have made their millions voting against the people. They have lost the heart and their guts to fight for the country any longer.
We need some hungry candidates.
I just read where Rubio voted for the trade deal, making it the needed vote, without reading it.
Can we find a good candidate at all out there?

Now the House conservatives need to rise up against RINO McCarthy, because if he is the next speaker, it will be just more of the same.
